In the beginning we find Lady Gillian Rutherford in the hunt for an American business man named Drake Sutherland. She wishes to charm him into falling for her and offering marriage so that he can take her away to America. Gillian is being blackmailed and the only way she can escape and protect her sister, Lady Whitney, is to marry Drake and leave England behind. She accidentally bumps into his business partner Lord Alex Trevelle, Marquess of Lionhurst.
Alex is intrigued by Gillian, tries to seduce her. But she tells him of her plan of making Drake fall in love with her and taking her away. Alex agrees to help Gillian capture Drake's heart, and what follows is some very entertaining moments when you find these two in some heart fluttering situations. Alex tries hard to step aside and give his friend the open path to Gillian, but these two just can't seem to not fall into each others arms again and again. Her aunt is also a hoot and so great at trying to get these two together.
In addition, Alex also has a secret that he carries with him that is preventing him from offering for Gillian.
We also have a villain, Lord Westenburt, which Gillian's father offers her up to marry. He is a cruel, vicious guy and you just can't help but squirm every time he comes into the scene.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book and look forward to others in the series.
Still, pretty good story. Not clean if you are one of those who prefer it sterile, so be warned.
We have more than one villain who added to the suspense of the story. Some twists and more H's for our h than I wanted - lol.
We have very passionate lovemaking mildly described. Great secondary character's that brought more richness to the story. We are also treated to great character development for our main character's. I would highly recommend this story, but just know you are not going to see into their future. We do finally get HEA, which at times I wasn't sure would happen.
I am not going into the blurb of the story, just what you will feel reading it. (ljb)
Gilliam Rutherford’s most deepest dream is to escape both her family’s dark secret and an unwanted marriage, which will force her to remain in London, take her sister and leave England. She is desperate enough to try anything to make this happen. She makes plans to seduce a shipping tycoon from America into marrying her. Sutherland is looking for a wife and thinks Gilliam will fill his need very well.
Lord Lionhurst, Alexander Trevelle, is Sutherland’s, the American’s friend. All three meet at a ball and although Alexander knew Gilliam knew each other when they were children they fail to recognize each other. Alexander discovers her plans and takes it upon himself to stop her at whatever the cost. Anyone who will seduce and trap his friend into marriage is not the sort of person he would wish on anyone. When he discovers who Gilliam is currently betrothed to, a man he desperately wants to destroy, he has a proposal for her, with his final goal to seduce and then leave her. He will help her win his friend’s hand if she will help him gain revenge against her current unwanted betrothed. The bottom line is he wants Gilliam for himself and plans through his seduction to win her heart.
Gilliam and Alexander are truly two of the most contrary and stubborn members of the ton. Mix that together with an Aunt and sister who love to meddle and you have a recipe for surprises, suspense, humor, and passion.
I highly recommend anything written by this author to anyone who loves to read romance.
Tristan Hunt, the narrator on the Audible recording, was excellent in rendering the voices of the various characters. I truly enjoyed his baritone delivery. I will look for more books with him as a narrator.
I will also look for more books by Julie Johnstone, since this is the first in a series.
